Enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere on Kotatsu Train (Sanriku Railway)

Every winter, local operators run old-fashioned rides that bring Tohoku’s rich cultural heritage to life.

The Sanriku kotatsu train was forced to shut down temporarily after the railway was severely damaged in the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. Reopened in 2014, it not only allows you to relax while enjoying mouthwatering bento lunches—made with fresh sea urchin, abalone and scallops caught from nearby coasts—but also offers panoramic coastal views of Iwate Prefecture.
